    Raced EVO in rain.. pretty sure it was stock

    Me and my girlfriend were sitting at a light and i said "check out that car back there" she looked and i said " Bet $ he passes all them cars and trys to race me. (he was about 2 cars back and a lane over) Sure enough after i said that the light turns green and he starts weaving around cars to get next to me. I was cruising about about 40 in 5th gear.(it was raining) He is pulling hard behind me at about 60 im guessing by how fast he was catching up to me and i was only going 40. I say screw this im not gonna let this guy just pass me up w/out a chance.About when he was one car length behind i droped to 2nd. So i drop into 2nd mash on the gas take it from about 40 to 80 or so because there was a light ahead. I pull about another car length on him. I was suprised i thought for sure he'd pass me givin his momentom. But i guess thats what stage 3 did for me. I'd have liked to race again but he turned off at the next light.

    nice runs... but racing in the rain is a bit dangerous. the part is that it was raining and you said that you shifted down to second and mashed the gas...
    any other fwd or rwd car would have spun like mad and lost control... atleast my integra would have

    You were in 5th gear around 40mph. The car must have been gasping for a gear change.

    Please be careful and not race in the rain. For innocent bystanders sake.

    ya thats why i stoped it at 80, i like to cruise in 5th to save gas. I always put safety first, there was no one around.
